I can't seem to find any way to change the default font size on the whole sytem? Is this possible? I know that some programs' fonts can be changed but not all.

With the 3.10 sharp rom an email containing a graphic was visible at the bottom of the email without saving the attachement and opening it up with another program.

I really miss this feature that does not seem to work with the cacko rom.

Any ideas of why there is only a blank screen with the cackom rom as opposed to the Sharp rom? I especially miss not seeing my faxes sent in tif format.

Also, it appears as though it does not even download attachments at all. I have not done any full tests yet, but all my faxes in tif format that are emailed to me cannot be viewed at all: there is just a distorted image if I try to open them with tiff viewer.

Thanks for any clues.

I am using the last cacko rom for sl5500 and I noticed that the tif attachements were visible and viewable directly from the email screen using the 3.10 sharp rom. With this cacko rom, tif attachements are a blank and I can't even save them. I'm not sure why and was wondering if the email portion is upgradable to the latest QT version? I don't want to switch back to the sharp rom as the cakom rom, quite amazingly, lets you use a 1 gig sd card as an internal drive and it is working really well.

Any ideas? the tif files are are sent to me from a "fax to email" service like efax in which a fax is turned into a multipage tif attachement and emailed to one's inbox. It was pretty cool to just view these faxes directly from the main email screen without any conversion or any work whatsover.

Hello, I bought a 3100: what a thing of beauty! I now can truly live without my laptop when travelling.
I still use my Palm t5 for Pim duty and bluetooth email though, as the 3100 is just too big to stick in a pocket or a belt pouch. (I also use the 3100 with bluetooth and Wifi)

-I am looking for a T5 replacement.
-must be able to use a bluetooth card to download email
-must be much more compact than the 3100
-must be able to use KOPI PIM software
-must be able to use the basics like a spreadsheet etc...that is compatible with the 3100
-Must be linux...of course.

I am looking at the 5500 5600 6000 c760 c860 etc... but I am lost as I cannot actually hold them in my hands to see if buying one of these will make a major difference in portability.

Can anyone help me focus a on just one or 2 models. I saw the c760 at one place for about 300.00 bucks. Would this be a good choice? Is this a model that could work as a smaller 3100 for everyday PIM and bluetooth email use?

As a t5 replacement, bear in mind that I will be using it 1000 times a day. Not really doable with a 3100 as it's too big and heavy and I would not want to subject such a nice unit to so much abuse. My 3100 will be used in my hotel room for serious work only.

Thanks for any help.

I've installed these perl files and cannot find the file they are asking me to modify.

Before you install Perl do the following:
# su
# cd /home/root
# ln -s /usr/local usr

Then install the following packages:

* libperl - [libperl_5.6.1_arm.ipk]
* perl-base - [perl-base_5.6.1_arm.ipk]
* perl5 - [perl_5.6.1_arm.ipk]

mad.gif WHERE IS THIS FILE: I CAN'T FIND IT ANYWHERE, THE ".profile file." mad.gif

Once the packages have been installed add the following to the .profile file:
export LC_ALL=C
